Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Raffaele Marone with Sergio Izzo

The Great Wall of China… Le Corbusier’s 1931 Algiers Plan Obus…Soria y Mata’s 1862 La Ciudad Lineal… the 5-kilometer-long linear cypress path in Bolgheri…

A never-ending tree path, full of elderly and children, women and men, people on bikes and people walking through a collage of hundreds of different landscapes, races, colors, hairdos and clothes, where the trees change as the geography changes.

Hotel Park and Seeallee Heiden in Switzerland by Kubota & Bachmann Architects

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Article source: Kubota & Bachmann Architects

The Park Hotel is located in a strategic point in Heiden, where different urban conditions come together: The landscape  continuity crossing the plot area, the particular building density and its relevant position from the main entrance to the city. Those realities are shaping the final proposal, in order to achieve a perfect urban integration, enhance the environment qualities, and make city, within the strict respect of urban regulations.

Interpretation Center for Agriculture and Livestock in Navarra, Spain by Aldayjover

Saturday, April 6th, 2013

Article source: Aldayjover

The agricultural foundation Fundagro is an institution for the promotion of organic farming and the recuperation of biodiversity in local garden vegetable seeds. The foundation is located in Aranzadi Park, which is a recovered meander of the Arga River, on the high course of the Ebro River basin as it passes through Pamplona. This meander was strongly affected by human activity during the twentieth century, during which sports, religious and social facilities, building lots with private dwellings, and land movements to contain the river, had transformed its morphology and landscape away from a natural meander.

Sede Geacam SA. in Cuenca, Spain by Díaz Romero Arquitectos

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Díaz Romero Arquitectos

The project is part of a set of actions to get an attractive and sustainable space. On a plot in the steep terrain, we adapt to it with molded shapes as three volumes that save the unevenness. The landscape is introduced into the building through attractive elongated courtyards which could guide the various offices of the offices by a north-south orientation logic and save the terrain variations between the two access roads.

Eco Vall in Castellón, Spain by Juan Marco Marco

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: Juan Marco Marco

On the basis of a Prototype designed for a competition, we have given shape to this installation in a concrete territory:
an installation in the landscape. Ecoparks being centres of collective collection of domestic waste (excepting the organic kind,
for which normalised channels of elimination already exist), we consider it essential to introduce in the project the communications variable, or at least to generate its possibility.

Beausejour ZAC in La Réunion, France by Tekhnê architects

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Article source: Tekhnê architects

The urban development plan for Beauséjour, on the Sainte-Marie town in La Réunion, aims to meet a tremendous challenge. It consists in taking an outstanding 80 ha site of sugar cane fields and then conceiving and creating a town that will be loved by its population and will go through time without hindrance, by integrating it into the environmental setting of the 21st century. (Re-)Discovering the pleasure of living “in town”, on an island, in a period when people prefer to live individually and apart, is not as simple as it may seem.

Kic Park in Shanghai, China by 3GATTI Architecture Studio

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Article source: 3GATTI Architecture Studio

Kik Park is a leftover urban area that Francesco Gatti is surprised to see has escaped being built-up and which is positioned at the entrance to the Kic Village, constructed in recent years for the students at the nearby universities of Fudan and Tongji.  Since 2005 when the Italian architect transferred part of his professional activities to China he has recurrently been interested in the possibility of designing interstice spaces – as in the case of the In Factory JingAn Six Loft Buildings (2006), where the outside areas of the redevelopment project were treated on a par with a residential and work environment.

St. Horto in Rome, Italy by OFL Architecture

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Article source: OFL Architecture

The project stems from the idea of creating a perfect synergy between architecture, nature and social technologies Jardimpu (Arduino and Paraimpu).

The name “St. Horto” is a pun, between Italian and English language. The two words “Horto” and “St” give at the same time the idea of a sacred, intimate garden and of something crooked, apparently disordered but full of life, just like a plant. Together they represent the irregular geometry (crooked or oblique) but highly controlled architectural design of the garden.
